Doom 3 Source Code to be Released Soon

Posted on November 1, 2011 - 8:00pm by Andrej

According to a Tweet by John Carmack himself, the source code of Doom 3 will be released into the wild very soon, just as promised at Quakecon 2011:

"doom 3 source is packaged and tested, we are waiting on final lawyer clearance for release." -John Carmack

It's great that id Software is so open-minded about their games and intellectual property. I can't wait to see what the community will come up with once they get their hands on this. I foresee a remake of the original Doom based on the engine of Doom 3.

Aw man...now I need a change of pants.
